Your opinion on steering wheel covers?

Im in the market to get once since I have the standard non sport wheel. Any suggestions on what to go with?

You have it all wrong. Pink furry steering wheel cover. With matching dice from the rear-view mirror.

Haha
Would fuzzy dice mess up my home link signal if I hang the on my mirror?

OP: go to Marshall's they have some Ed Hardy tigers, Hello Kitty, and a badass one with thorny roses on it. Bam. Done.

Or plastidip the wheel. It'll make it thicker and give it a nice rubber-grippy type feel. Just don't spray it while in the car.

If you're serious, save up and get an M-tech wheel. Check the Interior Parts For Sale section for good deals.

All Joking aside I use them occasionally.. Get one you can easily place on and off the steering wheel..

That way when you take it in for service put the cover on so those mechanics with their greasy hands won't foul up your wheel.

On those days when my hands are dirty (for whatever reason) I will put the steering cover on temporarily.

I usually make the practice of washing my hands thoroughly (like a surgeon) before I get in the ultimate driving machine.

Just replace the wheel with an M-sport wheel. Problem solved.

I took my steering wheel and had it professionally recovered with a combination of Alcantara for the sides and Nappa leather on the top and botton, fitted together with silver hand-stitched stitching...very very sweet! Cost me $150USD for a very professional job...but done in Taipei...so labor costs are lower. 2 years in and it still looks and feels like new. Do it once, and do it right!
